Literary Bookpost on South Main Street was open Wednesday after being closed Monday and Tuesday. Just The Thing, which sold children’s toys, has moved out of the building the two businesses shared.

Literary Bookpost is open again, but now there’s a little extra space in the building.

Until last week, the bookstore shared spaced with Just The Thing, which sells educational children’s toys, but the store was closed Monday and Tuesday while Just The Thing’s inventory was moved out.

Literary Bookpost was open Wednesday.

Bill Greene, majority owner of the bookstore, declined to give the reason why Just The Thing’s owner, Glenda Dyson, decided to move out of the building at 110 S. Main St. He said it is a private business matter.

A message seeking information was left with Dyson.

Deal Safrit, founder of Literary Bookstore, said Monday there is a dispute between Dyson and Greene, but added he did not know what it was about.

Deal still owns a minority share in the bookstore, but is retired and no longer involved in day-to-day operations.

Lawyers for Dyson and Greene said Monday no legal action is pending between the two businesses.

The businesses had been sharing the same space since late last year.
